Im new to this forum and to dynamo working my way through tutorials, LinkedIn courses and the get started example in Dynamo…My question below isn’t project specific. I am just experimenting to understand how some nodes work.
I have linked an IFC into a blank Revit model. The IFC contains 1 wall, 2 duct elements and 2 Generic Face based openings. and used the following nodes (shown in the image below) to collect all elements from the IFC.
A. While my intent is to collect Generic Model, I get a list of 6 element 2 of which are wall elements (ind. 0 & 1). I have just in the IFC!! why is that? I have 1 wall element in the IFC, any logic behind it?
B. I am assuming that the elements named port_(XXXXXX) are the 2 ducts and 2 Generic FB opening? is this correct? if yes is there a way to filter out just the 2 Generic Face based families?
C. When I use Element.Geometry I see in the model 2 yellow geometries (I am assuming those are the two generic model families) … Element.Geometry help section says Get all Geometry, so I am not getting although what happened to the other solids/geometries listed under each index…
Many thanks in advance…
